General usage

The default text used is article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, taken from this Unicode page, wherever I could find it. I created a few instances myself, where it was missing, and occasionally I resorted to other texts or even arbitrary lists of characters. I'm indebted to Omniglot for many of the less common samples.

In some cases, a square box with a cross in it is displayed (this only occurs in the text view if you have the Adobe NotDef font installed). This indicates that the font doesn't cover all the glyphs needed to represent the sample text. Most often this applies to punctuation or other common characters. In Latin text, in particular, it indicates which fonts support extended characters and which don't. In normal use in a Web browser, glyphs for such characters will be backfilled by using a glyph from some other font.

All images are set to 28px in size by default, but this can be changed.
